BEST PHONES UNDER RS 20000

We will look at an elaborate analysis of which could be the Best phones under Rs 20,000. As new (and better) phones keep coming out every week we will also list phones that have recently been announced and are going to launch in the coming months. You will be able to find best upcoming phones at the end of the page.

 The under Rs. 20,000 category can be best described as a mid-range category of phones in which you can get the best features and functionality of a high end phone sans certain elite features. In today’s mobile market several mobile manufacturers have launched phones in this category so as to compete with other major phone manufactures (like Apple and Samsung) by releasing similar quality phones at more than half the cost of their Flagship level smartphones.

So, without further a due,
Here are the Best Phones under Rs. 20000 that money can buy. I will make three categories of these phones.
